PRE-SCHOOL DANCE

We believe the pre-school years are critical in a child’s development. Care is taken to not only teach correct skills, but also
to instill a love for dance and music. Our classes teach musicality and large motor and listening skills in addition to basic
dance technique. We do this with a positive, fun, and creative approach to engage the dancers and help foster a love for
dance. Care is taken to place dancers in the appropriate level class, not only by age, but also by their own development.
